Although I have already published a print edition of Legge's two trilogies (Thomas Legge: The Complete Plays, two volumes, Peter Lang Verlag, New York-Bern, 1993) the publisher has kindly granted me the right to produce a new, electronic edition of these works. I welcome the opportunity, for three reasons. First, of course, making these texts available in this format allows me to take advantage of the power of hypertext publication. Second, in the past decade I have learned a good deal about Renaissance versification, and I would hope that my explanation of the intricacies of Legge's metrics will strike readers as more plausible than what I rather naively wrote ten years ago. Third, the availability of new tools for searching Classical texts electronically facilitates the compilation of a far richer and more detailed line-by-line commentary on the text than was then possible.
